Kalahari Greentech Indicates Strong Growth of Wind Energy throughout the World

Kalahari Greentech, Inc. has announced that wind energy is likely to continue growing throughout the world, attributed to positive government policies. Moreover, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced a target of achieving 6% of electrical energy from wind by the year 2020 in the U.S.

During 1990 to 2002, wind was the fastest-growing energy source throughout the world, with a growth rate surpassing 30% annually. An average U.S. home utilizes around 10,655 kWh of electrical energy annually. One megawatt of wind power can produce 2.4 to over 3 million kWh annually.

A report by BTM Consult indicated that the year 2008 registered the highest wind turbine installation levels. Furthermore, over 200 GW of novel wind energy capacity can be produced by the close of 2013.

The World Wind Energy Association’s 2009 World Wind Energy Report indicated strong growth rates in 2009 in the wind industry. The report also indicated that growing awareness of the social, environmental and economic advantages of wind power will further increase investment in novel wind farms.

Solar and wind are some of the leading resources of renewable energy. The company designs, manufactures and supplies solar collectors, wind turbines as well as other sustainable energy technologies. Around $2 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was invested in 2009 on wind energy, funding the development of novel wind farms for powering 2.4 million homes.

The Wind Generator of Kalahari Greentech generates electric power even at low wind speeds. It can be optimized to function in water. For example, it can be used in rivers, tidal basins and streams. One of the most commonly faced problems in most wind generators is the problem of birds striking the wind turbine blades. This problem is overcome in the Wind Generator as it is equipped with a shield, which prevents birds from hitting the turbine blades.
